Yesterday was a big day for Portland fashion: a delegation of representatives from the Henan Fashion Association in China landed in our city! PDX Fashion Synergy is a group in Portland, dedicated to collaborating with and supporting the local fashion community, and there will be meetings and tours throughout the visit, as PDXFS works towards forging new partnerships between the Chinese and Portland designers.
PDXFS is also putting on a black tie fashion show fundraiser, FUSE, this Friday night! VIP tickets are already sold out for the show, but General Admission tickets are still available, and we’ll be there to cover the event! They’ll be showing designs brought from China by the visiting delegation, as well as lines from Portland-based designers such as Emily Katz, MAYTEE, and the men’s line Defyance.
